At the crossroad of heterogeneous temporalities, geographies and realities, Laurent Grasso’s films, sculptures, paintings and photographs immerse the viewer in an uncanny world of uncertainty. The artist creates mysterious atmospheres in which the boundaries of what we perceive and know are challenged. Anachronism and hybridity play an active role in this strategy, diffracting reality in order to recompose it according to his own rules. Fascinated by the way in which various powers can affect human conscience, Laurent Grasso tries to grasp, reveal and materialise the invisible. Ranging from collective fears to politics, through electromagnetic or paranormal phenomenon, the artist reveals what lies behind the commonly perceived and offers us a new perspective on history and reality.
